29 years ago, the Crimes Against Children Conference started with just 50 attendees. That year, two speakers - Brian Killacky, who was a detective with the Chicago Police Department and Ken Lanning, who was a Supervisory Special Agent with the FBI - provided training to this small group of law enforcement professionals. Since 1988, professionals involved in the investigation, prosecution, and treatment of crimes against children have been coming in growing numbers to receive training at this premier conference. We continue to see record attendance each year with 2016 setting an all-time high of more than 4,200 participants.
Our outstanding conference faculty, numbering well over 200 each year, provide an unmatched variety of workshops and case studies that address the most important issues faced by our attendees in their work. In addition to the 24 tracks of lectures, we offer nine tracks of hands-on computer lab training for those professionals working on technology and Internet-related crimes against children.
During the years since its beginnings, the Crimes Against Children Conference has established a reputation among professionals for high-quality training and great networking opportunities.
The Dallas Crimes Against Children Conference is not affiliated with other conferences using the same or similar naming conventions.
